My husband and I felt very 'at home' in this well-appointed accommodation. We stayed downstairs which was roomy but cosy with our own bath, seating area and access to laundry. Arlin was very accommodating and let us bring our 5-year old grandson over to have a meal and sleepover and watch a movie (also a dvd player downstairs).The kitchen was... More

My parents stayed at Almost Home for 3 days in August 2014. They loved it! They enjoy the sunny kitchen and living room, they enjoyed the quietness of the neighbourhood and the proximity of the Canada Game Center (2km), Transport Museum, (3.2km).Beringia Museum(3.5KM) and the Airport at a decent distance from the B/B. My mother said it was spotless and... More

We stayed downstairs in the basement which we actually found to be very comfortable with space to spread out and all facitilies nearby. While Arlin (owner) was not there during our stay she was well deputised by Deb and family who made us feel very welcome. We found the breakfast supplies to be quite generous and sufficient for our needs.... More

Not many B&Bs offer the run of a whole house. This one has plenty of spaces to find privacy or talk to new friends. Arlin made us feel very welcome and during our week's stay, introduced us to every new guest, making for a many conversations and shared experiences. Always interesting and never dull. Arlin offered for our two children... More

There are a few good things about this B&B: quiet neighborhood, nice backyard, proximity to the Canada Games Center and decent upstairs rooms and bathroom. Unfortunately, we stayed in the unfinished basement which was called a basement suite. This room had two decent single beds, a smaller than double bed with no comforter, a room which was the bathoom, laundry... More

Hello, I'm so sorry you were not happy with your stay. I wish you would have said something to me at the time. Usually guests are quite happy at Almost Home as many of the other reviews will testify. There are pillows and comforters for the fold down bed in the wooden box beside the bed. It is true that... More

Thank you Arlin, you were very accommodating and hospitable and quick to respond to any questions we had. We had a very comfortable stay with our 3 young children for two weeks in May 2013.

This guest house is charming and colorful, with comfortable rooms and gathering spaces. Interesting artwork and the wonderful signs of a creative spirit are all around. We were traveling with our 3 year old daughter, so the ability to have use of a kitchen was a lifesaver - eating out every meal with a toddler is not fun! Arlin, our... More
